mr. romney and mr. ryan are saying it's the president who are into social divisiveness. they are the ones splitting the countries between the have and have nots. they're the one playing the wealth disparity card. >> well, quite the opposite. you know i was a psychologist before i was a political person. in psychology we say that sometimes if someone's got a problem, that they tend to talk about it in ways that is very contradictory to their own feelings. the fact is that mitt romney said 47% of the american people basically are free-loaders parasites. he was talking about good hard working, salt of the earth, ohioans, americans. that started a narrative that built up over a series of months as we watched this man and watched this campaign. and that video confirmed for many ohioans exactly what they were thinking this man may be like. and he can say all he wants to say about class warfare, but he's the one waging it. you know he pays 14.1% in federal income tax. the average ohioan pays more than 20% in federal income tax. >> i'm sorry, sir, you're
with paul ryan. >> first of all, 47% mitt acknowledges himself that was an inarticulate way of describing how we're worried in that stagnant obama economy more people are becoming dependent on economy. >> what could be better for the emotional stability of a presidential candidate than your running mate calling you inarticulate? never mind. paul ryan is the one key numbers guy. so let's hear him explain the tax policy. >> the cut in tax rates is lower -- all american tax rates -- >> how much does it cost? >> it's revenue neutral. >> it's not revenue neutral unless you take away the deductions. the first half, lowering the tax rates. does that cost $5 trillion? >> no, no. look, i won't get into a baseline argument with you. >> you haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't have the time -- it would take me too long to go through all the math. >> all right. you know what, mitt? you better put paul ryan away somewhere. send him to a sports bar somewhere in ohio. at least he can have a few beers with voters. he's got that going for him. who knows, it might help make inroads with that 9% defi
paul ryan on the ticket of just supposed to be the thing for the ticket. that is when mitt romney picked up. more than a few republicans wondering why the campaign is not showcasing it ryan now front and center, for a campaign concerned about its base, renewed focus on one guy who still jazzes that base, ryan, get used to seeing him, including this very show tomorrow. paul ryan, my exclusive special guest. charlie gasparino, a lot of republicans have been saying, what took you so long, what to you think? >> well, from what i understand, prominent business republicans, have given a lot of money to mitt romney over the last you know year. and have access to him through direct lior intermedia, voicing their concern he is not using paul ryan enough, and that he is been muzzling paul ryan, this is reached a sort of crescendo, talk it pointed where ryan has had to dispel the rumor or notion, i should say, he has been muzzled. neil: he is speaking everywhere. but media decides if they want tto pay attention. >> but what is he saying? is he taking the fight to president obama, who accordi
of these televised events? what about paul ryan saying this morning the media are rooting for barack obama to win and was it more important for the president to do this -- >> you're very happy that you came on with us, mrs. obama, and brought your date. >> i brought him. he had a few minutes in his schedule. >> i told folks i'm just supposed to be eye candy for you guys. >> -- than to meet with world leaders at the u.n. how do comedians come up with precisely the right way to mock to politicians and others? >> we have a very different plan on how to offer tax relief. >> thanks for spending a few moments with us. you, sir, are great. >> thank you. >> a conversation with daryl hammond. plus the media krieled foul again and again and again when an nfl replacement ref blows a big qaa. we'll blow the was on that high decibel coverage. i'm howard kufrt and this is "reliable sources." -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com >>> every day it seems the media is finding new reasons for why romney has fallen behind. as politico said the other day, maybe he's a lousy daenlt. someone commented maybe the polls a
picked paul ryan as his running mate. >> absolutely. lynn is absolutely right. >> that's -- that is where that turned. before then, i think it was a referendum on obama's tenure as the leader of our economy. >> right. he had bob portman, he had a perfect chance to win ohio to say i'm a centrist mainstream republican. here i am. i told you people on the right where i stand on things. i'm now not going to pick the most radical, both fis fiscally and in terms of physical policy guy in washington of any influence. he went to ryan and he stuck with him now and he brought him nothing, ryan. >> charlie crist, a rmepublican and now independent and he does support president obama. governor, good to see you. to carl's point as well as lynn's and let's talk about this selection of paul ryan. you come from a state obviously with a very large older population, key voting bloc. they vote in big percentages. did he buy into, my choosing ryan, the medicare plan which now in every swing state shows not just that people favor president obama's approach but they favor it by double digits. this isn't even cl

're skype. i'll let you start off first here. let me play what paul ryan, completely opposite of what chris christie said this sunday. his assessment of the debates. let's play ryan, please. >> i don't think one event is going to make or break this campaign. look, president obama's a very -- he's a very gifted speaker. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> it's no secret, steve, you are conservative republican. you are not a fan of mitt romney. is this a make or break moment for his campaign on wednesday? who's right? chris christie or congressman ryan? >> well, if my head is twice as big as everybody on the panel does that mean i'm twice as smart in that's the question. >> you have to take that up with them. >> i think that they're both right in a way. i don't think one singular event will testimony the outcome unless either barack obama or mitt romney says there's no soviet domination of eastern europe. i do think one singular event can be a catalyst for an eventual outcome and begin a chain of events that we look back and say that's when the eventual outcome that we saw,
chairman o'ryan said is the unraveling of the obama foreign policy. the set backs, the killing in the middle east of an american ambassador. a break in our relationship with our most important ally in the region, and in soyria, over 30,000 people are dead. president obama thinks strength is provocative and history teaches us that weak is provocative. and we're weak overseas as we have seen our defense capabilities decrease and as the president hasn't stood up, with resolution for our values. so, yes, leadership is the overriding issue and it plays both foreign policy and on the economy. >> the question is chairman peter king, come back to you. do you think mr. romney should put this foreign policy leadership quotient or lack thereof into wednesday night's debate. i mean there's economic policy quotient that's going to be very important on leadership, what about foreign policy? >> yeah i think the lack of leadership in foreign policy shows itself in domestic policy. the president needs to be the president. he needs to be able to guide the nation, you can't do one without the oth
, but this number floored me, spoon 71% of democrs feel this way, i caught up with paul ryan, on the issue, maybe that is something that mitt romney was trying to clarify on this idea much spreading the wealth, end tax cuts. from ryan earlier. >> i was a little bit confused yesterday, congressman, when mitt romney was talking about the tax cuts he was invisioning, they would not be as big as you think, when you factor out you know, how we would phase out exemptions and allowances and deductions it may not be the big tax cut a lot of people were looking forward to. is he trying to brace us for some bette bitter news. >> no, lower tax rate, triggers economic growth, when people ask about, whose tax loopholes are you go after? we say by closing tax shelters for higher income earners, that allows us to lower tax rates for everyone. middle income tax payers get higher take home pay, businesses get lower tax rates that helps theme compete globally, and create job, by denying tax shelters to hire income earning that means we can lower tax rates on everyone without losing revenue, we get more revenue bec
at ease with the polls. cue paul ryan moments ago. here he is. >> are you troubled by the wisconsin polls? and they're just polls and you always remind me of that. for a while it looked like you could take that state. just a snapshot of the moment but trailing further in that state. >> i don't actually believe the validity of that poll. i won't get into all the methodologies of it. >> which would he believe in? >> one that has him ahead. that's the one he would believe in. the reality is there's a serious thing about polling in that it does matter what your sample is and it matters the sample size and it also matters the weighting, whether you have how many more democrats than republicans. but underlying the problem for mitt romney is that republican voter identification is dropping, so the polls do have to reflect a weighting that says that there are fewer republicans than there are democrats and there are more independents. it's because there's less identification with the republican party in the country. so if the polls are trending away from mitt romney, it's two things. number one, h
and mr. ryan. >> romney, ryan, romney, ryan. >> so that people don't get tired of her. >> when you go after my man -- >> stop it, this is hard. you want to try, it get in the ring. >> was i a little strong? >> never apologize for america. >> people will call my awful things every day. there are going to be bumps in the road. >> what's with the wily coyote nuclear bomb? >> 90 minute attack ad. >> president is obviously a very eloquent and gifted speaker. >> i would have, bam. >> i have neve been in a presidential debate like this. >> let's get right to our panel now. we're joined by democratic strategist julian epstein, michelle cottle, washington correspondent for "newsweek" and the daily beast, and michael krouly who is "time's" washington bureau sheaf. allow me to read to you if i may part of a statement from beth myers. she says the president is a universally acclaimed public speaker. it's clear he will use his ample rhetorical gifts and debating experience to one end, attacking mitt romney. i have to say, julian, that sounds suspiciously flattering to me. ten minutes ago they were

romney picked ryan as vice president, i said to my wife, i think romney may have lost the election here. the reason i said that was because by picking paul ryan, it opened up that argument of the republican party as extreme and the democrats just pounced on that as you would expect them to do. and the country does not want those extreme aspects of the republican party, those extreme right wing policies. they do realize that's what got us into this trouble both overseas with the war in iraq and also with the economy. and they are not going for it anymore. the republic no longer believes that the way to help middle class and low-income families is to give more money to the rich. so i thought that mitt romney would pivot to the middle. he decided not to do that. >> i feel like the country republicans people in the middle and on the left want a republican party that's essentially giving a good fight. so we can have a big hashed out discussion about how to fix our problems. i'll be talking more about that later in the show about something that's been left out of the campaign. but i think eve
and paul ryan have all seen fit to weigh in on this one football game from monday, on the referees issue. all three men saying that the green bay packers deserve to win that game. the packers got robbed. so even as the packers' agony crossed over into national politics this week, i still have to say that it remains true that the single west political green bay packers moment in history, the best moment of all time in the overlap that exists between the green bay packers and politics is still this moment. >> there are 30 teams, but only one packer organization, and that is the greatest football organization ever in america's history. there are only 187 days before training camp. and 360 days before we go back to miami! whereas the packers are america's real team, and we'll always be winners in the hearts and minds of the people of wisconsin, therefore i, tommy thompson, governor of the great state of wisconsin, do hereby proclaim january 27th, 1998, all over wisconsin, green bay packer day in honor of all of you, the fans! congratulations. thank you. >> tommy thompson, from the great stat
worlds! >> reporter: a week ago when republican vice presidential candidate paul ryan spoke about medicare to the american association of retired persons in new orleans, he got an earful. >> the law turned medicare boo into a piggy bank for obamacare! (boos) >> reporter: that frosty reaction is borne out in new polling, both by cbs news and others which found more people thought the president would do a better job handling medicare than governor romney. the "washington post" and kaiser foundation surveyed voters in virginia, ohio, and florida. in those states that found that sajorities of 56%, 59%, and 65% support maintaining medicare's current system of benefits. in flagler beach, florida, walt azie has some serious questions for romney. >> i think romney will turn the economy around but it's the other issues that we don't know about. >> reporter: like what? >> like the medicare, health care issues. >> reporter: in haymarket, virginia, life-long republican dan stapleton echoes fears about the romney/ryan ticket. >> i think they want to change ot so dramatically that we won't reco

. mitt romney and ryan were there just yesterdayp. >> >> just going to says the romney/ryan bus tour. we've spent time thinking about this whether to do it or not. ohio has been a central battleground and swing state in the last three or four elections. a poll among likely voters that has mitt romney down eight points. the trend in polling in that state, all the polls, obama is way, internal polling has obama ahead in the mid to high single digits. today ohio does not look the same as florida, for example. florida looks like a true toss up. colorado looks like a toss up. nevada. ohio, by the numbers does not and i would say and we've talked about this, without ohio there are scenarios mitt romney can be elect elected president in terms of winning 270 electoral votes. he needs ohio or i needs to find a way in some combination of wisconsin, iowa, michigan or pennsylvania. >> before i let you go, jeff, jump in here as well. paul ryan has spoken out on that incredible missed call at the end of the packers/seahawks game. the nfl is saying they stand by the call, at least roger goodell is unde
about everybody in republican politics, from mitt romn and paul ryan, all the way down to the scott browns of the world called for todd akin to get out of tt missouri senate race. fore the republican convention, but now, apparently, now we know how much time outrage wears off in. now republicans have decided they're over allf their concerns about todd akin. here he is doing a press conference last week with newt gingrich. newt gingrich ere showing his support forodd akin. miormer presidential candidate rick santorum threw their support behind todd akin. republican senator roy blunt, remember him? the guy who said todd akin has to get out. he put out a statement today saying that now his supporting todd akin. the state republicanparty, which had expressed grave public doubts about anft h cotsut se rapes being legitimate last month, they now say they're all in for todd akin as well. even the national republican party's senate campaign committee, the guys who said we're done when they were talking about todd akin, apparentlyhey are thinking now of not being done with him or owe jow of
side. >> we are starting out on the trail, as the gop makes push for ohio. vice-presidential paul ryan is that it town hall in cincinnati. the appearance is one of two for ryan in ohio as a new poll shows that the romney team is losing ground. today is all about foreign policy. mitt romney is speaking at the initiative, the d nations.at the unite olabanji is in the news from with the latest on both. mitt romney and president toma are speaking audiences in new city, both commenting on the middle east, including iran and syria. a lot of americans, including myself, are troubled by developments in the middle east. mitt romney took a serious issuesm stance on borders, especially in thelence and unrest east peace said that he struggling aid to nations in hopes that things there would improve. >> we will couple eight with investment and to empowers individuals, encourage innovators, and reward entrepreneurs. >> at the united nations, obama spoke about events in the middle east and film thatat the anti-u.s. protests. >> there are no words that the killing of innocents. his new video that just
been somewhat critical of paul ryan's performance, wanted to see a little bit more explanation. the one we are used to with the church, the house budget committee. we have not quite seen that yet. given the fact that here in ohio and other states, a key swing states like florida, some of the poll numbers are starting to move toward president obama. whether or not paul ryan needs to change his approach. what ryan says, his campaign is on track to win. >> at the final analysis when people see the very clear choice that we are offering, the contrast to two different visions a degree will be fine. because president obama is not working. >> reporter: you know, we talked a bit about tax reform and tax overhaul the republicans are looking to do and spoke about the romney's latest tax return, the 14 percent effective tax rate. i asked him, what governor romney spend more in taxes to iraq have to pay more in federal income-tax is under the brand new overall that you are talking about for the tax-cut? they're going to get rid of some deductions, although they have not exactly late at which deduct
in trouble in ohio he's really in trouble in florida. he cannot lose both those states. and paul ryan brought nothing to the ticket except fear. we have a situation where white seniors are afraid of medicare, their message that we're going to protect it did not get through, seniors saw through that. and so i don't -- we can obsess about the smaller states and it's really tight in nevada but in the end ohio and florida if he can't win those he can't win. >> let's talk about fear for a second because -- i'll bring you back in, jeff. there was a great screen shot still from the newest romney ad that says literally emblazoned across a person's face your job is in danger. but the question jeff, does that message compute to people that things are bad and thus you're going to vote for the other guy at this point? >> it's really a question of which message is really resonating and in ohio and a lot of these states. in ohio particularly the obama team has pushed the auto rescue, there are a lot of jobs in ohio that were saved by that, and they see that as one of the reasons he's doing so well. the rom
ryan and seemed ready to engage on the big stuff. medicare, entitlements, tax reform, national solvency, a restructured welfare state. he has since retreated to the small and safe and when you're behind, how far, safe is fatal. >> i don't think so. i think he has been running a very vigorous campaign. i think most people approve of his selection of paul ryan. it's tough. it's very difficult. >> why is he behind? >> i think he is behind because americans probably feel better than they did before jobs and the economy even though it's terrible. it's sort of the -- >> right track, wrong track? that's interesting. tell me. just stretch that out a little bit. >> i think americans see a glimmer of hope. there is slight improvement in the economy, and i think that some people, for example, a state like ohio, battleground state, thanks in my view to the governor that the unemployment is down. that's true in some of the others. i understand how tough this campaign is. i do believe that media coverage has something to do with it. but that is what it is. i think most americans will still be making
. paul ryan was out in iowa, iowa is a state having some early voting, according to our inbed out there, paul ryan wasn't making the same exhortations to the republicans in his audience to get them to go vote early. you're seeing two strategies by the obama and romney campaigns. >> what else do we learn from the nbc news/"wall street journal" poll in terms of their attitudes towards the debate? >> just on the debate front, as i was kind of saying, bill mcinturf had a conference call with us and saying -- i can't give away the data but unless there is something extraordinary -- >> point out bill is the republican half of the peter hart/mcinturf team, they work for nbc news. >> he was looking at the data and remarkable how stable it is. unless there's something really ka the ta chris mick or jarring it's going to be hard to knock these numbers out of what we've seen. it will be interesting to see the headline of what the split is between president obama and mitt romney. but bill mcinturf the republican pollster was saying it's going to have to have some kind of jolt to make the race not a
